(WTVR) - A couple of people are waking up with big smiles this morning because they are a lot richer than they were yesterday.

Two winning tickets were sold in Tuesday's $400 million Mega Millions drawing. It is the third largest jackpot in the game's history.

The winning tickets were sold in Florida and Maryland.

The odds of winning the multi-million dollar jackpot were one in 259,000,000. To put that in perspective, you are more likely to be attacked by a shark, while being struck by lightning and hit by an asteroid, than winning the lottery.

The two jackpot winners can split a cash payout of $224 million.

The winning numbers: 11-19-24-33-51 and the Mega ball 7.
